Unfurl your yoga mats – Calgary’s first ever yoga festival is hitting the city this March.
The Prana Yoga Festival will take place from March 17 to 19, and feature members of the yoga community from all around the city.
“Calgary is such a suburban city with so many wonderful studios, and because of that, it’s tough to ever experience the huge amount of talent that we have in the city,” says Danielle Dixon, founder of the festival.
The festival features three days of yoga classes, with nearly 100 sessions focusing on handstands, hips, and flow, among other things. There will also be opportunities to try out world dances, intention setting, meditation workshops, nutrition seminars, and mala bead making. There will also be a lounge to help foster connections and give you some more relaxing time away from the mat.
Although the festival’s main focus is on the yoga classes and activities, that’s not all it’s offering.
Dixon has partnered with local businesses like Seed Yoga, Yoga Passage, Yummi Yogis, Nourish Sweat Soul, and True Buch to create a market that will be available to attendees and the general public. There will also be live entertainment throughout the three-day festival.
Tickets are available online, including weekend only passes, three day VIP passes, and more. There are also community passes available for people who might not be able to afford a weekend pass. You can apply for a community pass and donate money towards one online.
Of course, you may not have to buy your passes. One lucky Daily Hive reader can win a weekend pass to the festival for free.
